My mother, Helen Matusz Bargiel, and Mila were friends since they were very little children. Imagine having a special, close friendship for almost 90 years!
My mother, siblings, and I are all heartbroken at this loss, and our condolences go out to the family.
Mila always had a sparkle in her eyes and a joy for life that came through and everything she did. I am so very grateful that she was such a special friend for my mother, through all of the challenges of life. And I am very grateful that I was able to know her. It does take a village of people to nurture a child. I was privileged to have Mila be a part of my nurturing.

So sorry to hear of your mom's passing. I have great memories of her sitting on her porch in our younger days. She will surely be missed by her family. A mother's love is never forgotten.
